Walnut and Main ATC

I've only started to paint in ATC size - and this is my first street scene!  Very overcast, I decided to draw this out in ink, adding watercolor after.  I worked very wet, and even left before it was dry - just trying to capture the gray mood of the day.  Even gray days have their beauty, it's all in the subtle changes from warm to cool.  I'm also using a different paper, another 100% cotton rag, but a completely different texture.  It works well in this tiny size, where I would never use it for larger work.  I guess I'll keep it after all!  This one is also heading to Mexico! Painting number 1799 in 1799 days!
